Automotive Manufacturing Technical Education Collaborative

July 2008–June 2009

Known as AMTEC and led by the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS), this National Science Foundation–funded National Center of Excellence is a consortium of 25 community colleges and 21 automotive manufacturing and service companies. The consortium aims to build consensus around the skill standards needed by technicians, develop course/subject matter content and delivery systems, and share and disseminate promising practices, emphasizing the use of cutting-edge technologies. CCRC served as an evaluation partner, providing data and findings from surveys, interviews, site visits, and college records that support program development.

This project was funded by the National Science Foundation.
